Which are common side effects resulting from other ear wax removal treatments.

Precision-Level Pressure

This makes for a more comfortable and effective treatment overall while reducing the risk of harming the eardrum and other sensitive areas of the ear. Our professionals have an in-depth knowledge of the ear’s anatomy and can make the necessary pressure adjustments to make sure all of the wax is removed while still ensuring the treatment is comfortable for you.

What is ear wax?

Most people assume ear wax, more formally known as cerumen, is just an annoying byproduct of bodily functions, it actually plays a crucial role in the overall health of your ears. The sticky and thick nature of ear wax makes it ideal for preventing dirt, debris, bacteria, and other airborne pollutants from getting into your ears and causing infections, hearing issues, or other issues.

Why does ear wax accumulate?

The human body naturally gets rid of ear wax without you having to do anything special. However, that’s when everything is happening ideally. It’s common for this natural process to get disrupted. When this occurs, ear wax will begin to accumulate and cause blockage. Other than further impairing a patient’s ability to hear and feeling uncomfortable, the build-up of earwax can lead to infections and other avoidable yet potentially harmful issues. When there’s a significant accumulation of cerumen, it’s called a wax impaction.

How should you treat a wax impaction?

There are a variety of methods for treating a wax impaction with the sole goal being the removal of ear wax to free up the ear canal. Some of the most common methods include suction, flushing, and even manual removal using professional instruments. Our professional team uses a combination of these methods based on what your personal circumstance demands. We’re committed to ensuring you remain comfortable and pain-free throughout the whole process. Our audiologists are all trained specifically for ear wax removal so you can rest assured you’re in good hands. We’ll even use video otoscopy so you’ll have a clear view of what our specialists are seeing. Although you don’t have to watch if you don’t want to!

What are some signs you need wax removal services?
As mentioned before, ear wax is a perfectly natural and even essential component of your overall ear health. So, how do you know when there’s an issue? In general, the build-up of earwax means there’s a problem with your ear’s natural ability to get rid of cerumen. Here are some symptoms to keep an eye out for that might mean you need to see one of our specialists.
Blocked Ears
Many times, the build-up of ear wax is clearly noticeable to people. If your ears feel blocked or clogged, it’s a telltale sign that there’s too much cerumen in your ear. A little ear wax is perfectly normal and even a sign that your ear is healthy overall. But, when you start to notice the amount of earwax in your ear, it’s probably a sign that there’s too much of a build-up.
Ear Pain
Another common sign of excessive amounts of cerumen is ear pain. Since there are so many issues that can cause ear pain such as infections and injuries, it’s important to get the input of an audiologist to get to the root of the problem. When there’s too much wax in your ear, your body’s natural methods for getting rid of cerumen struggle to keep up. As ear wax remains in the ear, it can harden and put pressure against the nerves in your ear, resulting in discomfort and even sharp pains depending on the amount.
Dark Earwax
If you’ve ever cleaned out your own ears, you’re familiar with the dark-yellow color of earwax. It might look nasty, but this is the standard tinge of cerumen and a sign that your ear is healthy. However, when you notice ear wax that is darker than normal, it could be an indication that there’s too much wax in your ear. The more dust and debris that your ear wax picks up, the darker in color it becomes. But when there’s too much cerumen, the normal yellow color turns to a darker shade.
Loss of Hearing
There are many reasons people have hearing loss. One of the most common and most easily solved is the overproduction of earwax. When cerumen has time to build up in your ears and doesn’t drain properly, it acts as a barrier between sounds and your inner canal where these sounds are processed. The thickness and consistency of ear wax make it act like a natural noise reducer which isn’t ideal for everyday life. Since the build-up of ear wax is gradual, it’s difficult for patients to know when cerumen is the cause of their temporary hearing loss. That’s why it’s vital to visit a professional to get properly diagnosed so you can restore your hearing quickly and efficiently.
